Ninja Powers!


Happy Sunday!  Last night we were invited to a small gathering to celebrate 2 of the kids from my own kids' old taekwondo school who tested for their first degree blackbelts.  Although it was a last minute invite, we couldn't say no because we have missed the kids and their families.  I literally had to make these 2 cards in less than an hour so this is what I came up with. 

I'm still loving the sketch effects on the Silhouette Studio so I opted to turn 2 martial arts cuts into sketches.  Not much embellishments going on here and I kept them pretty much black and white to mimic the new blackbelts' black and white uniform.  Just a little stitching (ok fine, a LOT of stitching!) and a strand of black ribbon to serve as black belt on the card to the right.  The cards are size A2. 

Here are some closeups:

Thanks for stopping by!
